Voit Becomes Sole Regional Firm To Rank In Nation's Top 10 For Industrial Investment Sales


Voit Real Estate Services is the only regional real estate firm which ranked in the top 10 nationally in industrial investment sales in 1Q 2013, according to statistics just released by national market research firm Real Capital Analytics.

Voit, a full-service commercial real estate provider serving Phoenix and the Southwestern U.S., was named in the top 10 in a new 2013 quarterly report, alongside nine national and global firms.

rsz_mark_read“This achievement is a direct result of our firm’s recent expansion initiative, through which we have aggressively recruited top talent in each of the markets we serve,” said Mark Read, Executive Managing Director for Voit Real Estate Services. “We have added more than 20 brokers in the past 12 months, and we are well equipped in each market, with strong experts who are capable of closing substantial deals.”

The Real Capital Analytics report, which ranks the top industrial brokers of 1Q 2013 by transaction volume, includes statistics on all investment sales more than $2.5M in value.

With $273 million in total investment sales during 2013’s first quarter, Voit was ranked as number six in the country for flex deals, and as number five in the Western Region of the U.S. for all industrial transactions.

“The significance of these rankings is their reflection of how we serve the industry,”  Read said. “As an experienced real estate owner, operator, broker, property manager, contractor and developer, we are at the forefront of the real estate market in the Southwestern U.S. This report, however, confirms a deeper expertise, reflecting how our services fit in from a national perspective.”

According to Read, over the past 24 months, Voit has increased its partnerships with large investors throughout the nation who are seeking a “one-stop-shop” of local knowledge and services in the Western U.S.

“By continuing to partner with national companies seeking the real estate opportunities available here in the West, we continue to expand our reach and reconfirm ourselves as strong players in the national arena,” Read noted.

In addition to Voit, the top 10 industrial brokers included in Real Capital Analytics’ 1Q 2013 report included CBRE, Eastdil Secured, Cushman & Wakefield, Jones Lang LaSalle, HFF, Colliers International, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, Stan Johnson Co., and NAI Global.
